Student supports dodgeball tournament

I am presently working on my Communications Merit Badge, and I would like to express an opinion on the dodgeball tournament referenced in the Dec. 22 issue of the Chesterfield Observer.

I believe this tournament will free some kids from the indoor, boring activities that we are all involved with. I’m a sophomore in Midlothian High School, and it seems like my generation is mostly indoors playing video games during their free time, especially during the winter. I think this dodgeball tournament will help kids get out and do something active and fun at the same time.

I’m all for it and support these kinds of activities. Always remember the five D’s of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge.
